  1. I wish I had made an effort to see Marcel Marceau perform live. Because I loved Chaplin my dad took me to Powell St in SF to see Robert Shields. He was great, too. Almost as well known as MM for a brief time. Great job, as always, E. Sum.

    • I got to see him perform live when he was very old. He still had it though. He did one act where he got a “happy mask” stuck on his face. You could see the terror and anger of him trying to remove the “mask” all while he kept that happy mask smile. How he could express those emotions with a smile stuck on his face was phenomenal. I fell in love with Marcel Marceau when I was a little girl watching him when he’d be a guest on the Red Skelton show. Hadn’t thought of that in years!

  3. These pictures are stunning. I particularly like the Marcel Marceau quote and your accompanying poem. I had to ponder both a while. 🙂 This is a very optimistic post, which is very needed in these times.

    • Merci beaucoup, LuAnne. Yah for optimism! Your description of Marceau, for me translates into mime what Mozart, also Debussy, perhaps other composers tell us about music being the silence between the notes. 🙂
